The Braves issued an apology for the inconvenience caused by a near four-hour rain delay Monday night in a letter sent to fans with tickets to the Braves’ 2-1 win over the Mets and offered a deeply discounted ticket to a later game this season in return.
Monday’s game did not start until 10:53 p.m. and ended at 1:22 a.m.
“We strive to provide the best possible experience for all fans that visit Turner Field, and realize that last night’s weather-related delays led to a less than ideal Braves baseball experience,” the letter stated.
The offer stood for all of Monday’s ticket-holders, those who stayed until the end of the game and also those who didn’t. Fans can take their tickets to the Turner Field ticket office and purchase a $5 ticket in the Field View, Terrace View, Outfield, Club Pavilion or Upper Box sections for one of 18 games in the second half.

The Braves haven’t been able to acquire the ace they might have wanted for the top of their rotation, but they secured the depth they needed Monday with the signing of free agent right-hander Gavin Floyd.
One week after the Braves were eliminated by the Dodgers in a four-game division series, Braves general manager Frank Wren met with the team’s beat writers and discussed the 2013 season and the team’s needs going into the offseason.
